When you lose somethin'
It's all that you want back
You're waitin' patiently
But it don't work like that

When you lose someone
The first thing that goes through your head
Is if you run fast enough
You just might catch up
But it don't work like that

You just gotta watch it fly
Stand there on the side lines
Go on and swallow your pride
You know it's gonna be alright
Wish it well and close your eyes
With a kiss goodbye

Well the hardest part
Yea it hurts so bad
Is when she spreads her wings
But it'd be a selfish thing
To try and hold her back
But it don't work like that

You just gotta watch it fly
Stand there on the side lines
Go on and swallow your pride
You know it's gonna be alright
Wish it well and close your eyes
With a kiss goodbye

When you lose something
It's all that you want back

You just gotta watch it fly
Stand there on the side lines
Go on and swallow your pride
You know it's gonna be alright
Wish it well and close your eyes
With a kiss goodbye

Like a kiss goodbye

Song facts

"I feel like this one takes us to a new place, and I love that place. It's that whole art of giving of yourself without looking for something in return. You have to just let it go. Since I have a little one, I felt myself connecting to it as a father who loves his daughter and will one day have to let her go. It was a message for me too of how to be in that situation." - Phillip Sweet

"'Kiss Goodbye' can take you many places. It can be lost love or anything else in your life that for whatever reason you have to kind of let go and part with, which can be a hard thing to do. There's just a raw emotion in having to do that in life. I think we've all kind of been in that place at one point or another, and it's not an easy thing to do. I think people will really identify with it." - Jimi Westbrook
